Style of the Vans Checkerboard Old Skool Lite
Vans fused two of its iconic designs – the checkerboard and Sidestripe -- and came up with an Instagram-, cover page-worthy lifestyle sneaker, the low-top Vans Checkerboard Old Skool.
Walk the city streets in style when you pair this with rolled-up denim, a plain tee, and plaid polo for a simple, laidback look; match it with tear-away pants and moisture-wicking shirt for a sporty vibe; or fuse it with tapered pants, plain undershirt, tailored coat for a classy finish.
Crafted with a well-assembled upper composition, the Vans Checkerboard Old Skool Lite is outfitted with a durable toe cap to withstand common abuses and comes with an adequately padded collar to support the foot during movement.
This checkerboard-printed sneaker boasts a lightweight structure which makes it streetwear essential.
History of the Vans Checkerboard Old Skool Lite
The Vans Checkerboard Old Skool Lite is a throwback style of the relic skate model by Vans that initially turned up on the surf-and-skate scene of South California in 1977.
Initially called the Vans Style 36 before it was rebranded as the Old Skool, this skate-rooted sneaker was conceived out of a fancy doodle by Paul Van Doren that bore a curvy strip of leather on the outer panels of the shoe.
One of the retro renditions of this much-sought legend is the Vans Checkerboard Old Skool Lite. This variety is made with a strong retro fever in a wholly toned down form.
At the same time, it is symbolic of the 1970s birth era of the Old Skool, which is also the similar period when Vans first played up with the checkerboard motif.
